Gotta love that Apple craftsmanship

You're likely to find the same problem in laptops from every manufacturer, it's not an Apple thing.

Yeah this is from an Apple service manual. That explains a lot.

This explains why Apple is so expensive.

Wow lol, that pic has got to be a joke.

Good lord... Step 1: load your thermal compound into your caulking gun. Step 2: apply liberally. Don't be shy. Pile that **** on there!

Are those green squares not the entire part? That looks about right to me.

Laptops use a rectangle shaped thermal conductor. It's supposed to be rectangular and limited to a relatively small area. The way Apple's paste was applied has a gross amount of excess paste outside the normal contact area.

Examples of better pasting:
T61 (what it's supposed to look like): http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T61-and-prior-T-series-ThinkPad/T61-and-T61p-fan-and-heatsink-thermal-grease-and-thermal-pads/ta-p/394627

T41 (how it's applied): http://www.blogster.com/media/albums/users/l/a/p/laptoppartstore/lenovo-thinkpad-t43/.view/thinkpad-t43-fan-14.jpg

It doesn't look nice but is it really a problem?

That is just...... Horrible. I don't even know what to say besides that. I am at a loss for words.
